Elton John Keeps Vision Alive in Fight Against AIDS

Sir Elton John makes the red ribbon proud with his fundraising efforts for his Elton John AIDS Foundation. His organization recognized former President Bill Clinton, Evelyn and Leonard Lauder, Sharon Stone, and Lily Safra on Monday night in New York by presenting them with Enduring Vision awards.

Since founding EJAF in the early '90s in the Unites States and his native United Kingdom, Elton has raised over $150 million for the cause. He told ET, "We live in a time where we mustn't let AIDS get forgotten about…We have to carry on the fight and get as much done as we possibly can in our small way."

Honoree Sharon Stone credits the organization with "taking away the stigma of AIDS." Soap star Susan Lucci said, "It's a cause that's so worthwhile. So many of us in the entertainment industry know so many people who this will touch. And the arts touch everyone."
